A variety of teaching approaches are employed to encourage the learner to speak.

What disappointed you about Power French Verbs I (English and French Edition)?

I'm an intermediate level student. I struggle with recalling verbs, nouns I already know when speaking. This book seemed like a good choice to use for practicing recall and speaking.Unfortunately there are sever problems with this audio book1. It is poorly edited or structured. Listeners are asked to repeat phrases using verbs that have not been presented. In the very beginning your asked to conjugate the verb Etre and then the following sentences are all around the verb Aller.2. Although I was looking to push myself to recall words faster the book does not provide enough time after the English instructions for students to try an answer before the French response.3. The amount of time given for students to repeat and or practice what they've heard is too short or nonexistent. But what worse is that the time is inconsistent.

Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Frobose again?

I was optimistic about the book and so I purchased bother Power Verbs 1 and 2. So I will listen to Power Verbs 2 in hopes that they've done a better job.
